From Ian Miles Cheong at Daily Caller:
Evergreen State College has settled a tort claim with professor Bret Weinstein and his wife Heather Heying for $500,000 in connection to the 2017 “Day of Absence” protests, which saw anarchy spread throughout the campus earlier this year.
“Through a series of decisions made at the highest levels, including to officially support a day of racial segregation, the college has refused to protect its employees from repeated provocative and corrosive verbal and written hostility based on race, as well as threats of physical violence,” their claim stated.
Weinstein alleges that he was frequently called a “racist” by his peers for his refusal to support the so-called “Day of Absence,” which demanded white students and faculty recuse themselves from campus for a day so non-whites could have a powwow about oppression. More.
The faculty at Evergreen should be thanked for their concern for social justice but apprised that there was no need to turn their campus into the type of institution where staff need protection from inmates (prison, secure mental ward, etc.). Let alone to teach their students to model the typical behaviour of such inmates.
Note: Of course, this come-da-revolution is a great racket for certain types of profs to be in. They teach a student to behave in a way that no mentally normal group of human beings on the planet wants to tolerate. He starts to rage against the injustice of it all until… he is a teen soldier in their cause-of-the-month.
Yes, there is injustice here! Students should address the injustice by suing for educational malpractice.
And then please sit down and learn some biology. Or go away.
